    1)We used it usually in the top right box and the top right and the top middle one.
    2)Low angle
    3)Definitely trying to keep the elevator door open to get the video right. Also, the rule of thirds.
    4)Getting all of the different shots and having to cut it at the right moment.
    5)Time and space from using the slow motion.
    6)More dialogue, more shots and more getting to know the characters.
    7)Twisted. We took out time this time and with editing and the different shots we took.
    8)Don’t pan as much just go to the shots.

  2. 1) To use rule of thirds, we put things we wanted the audience to focus on.
    2) Some of the camera angles we used were extreme close-ups, over-the-shoulder, longshots, and more.
    3) The most difficult part of the shooting process was trying to make variation between shots.
    4) The most difficult part of the editing phase was making the shots transition from one to another.
    5) We used slow-motion, something we used in a previous project.
    6) We could have slowed down some parts, made some scenes not go by so quick, and make some of the dialogue easier to hear to improve the video.
    7) My favorite video was ours, because the shots were interesting and our plot was mostly coherent.
    8) From other videos, I learned that I could do voiceovers, which I think would help tell a video’s story.
